Pinkish Black

Like fellow Southern heavies Mastodon, Savannah's Kylesa has gradually accrued a rabid following by piling eclectic elements atop a burly metal foundation. On Oct 25, you'll hear from the band's recent prog-psych opus, Ultraviolet. Don't sleep on billmate Pinkish Black. This Fort Worth duo—whose name references the grisly suicide of a former bandmate—has made one of the year's eeriest albums, Razed to the Ground, featuring darkly luminous goth-doom that should summon a true haunted-house vibe onstage.
